Heard Tips For Safety & Helping Police
For Business & Individuals
Crime Commission is a non-profit, private organization of concerned citizens
who believe that individual action can help stop crime. Moreover, the Crime
Commission members believe that individuals have a responsibility to themselves
and their community to be involved in crime prevention.
An outgrowth of the Criminal
Justice Task Force created by the Metropolitan Tulsa Chamber of Commerce in
the 1970s, the Metropolitan Tulsa Citizens Crime Commission was incorporated
in 1971 and later changed its name to Crime Commission, Inc. in 2004.
Some of their core programs:
* Alert Neighbors
* Arrest Arson
* Citizens Alert Patrol
* Crime Stoppers (596-COPS) / Spanish Line (596-7000)
* Gangs Advisory Council
* Safe Escape
Carol Bush and Officer
Scott Walton spoke to the gathering of the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce
Thursday Aug. 2nd, 2007 at the Library. They offered common sense tips
to plan ahead and be aware of your situation to stay as safe as possible
at work and home. Lighting, cameras, phones, buddy systems, safety meetings,
self defense classes, reporting suspicious activity to police, were
just a few of the topics covered.
The Crime Commission
covers a 17-county area in NE Oklahoma. They help raise funds for rewards
for those helping to solve crimes. They provide the "Safe Escape"
program to elementary school kids.
